Let’s face it, one of the most important problems facing small businesses today is promoting their brand name and services to their prospective clients & stakeholders. In today’s fast paced and constantly changing economy; effectively marketing your business can leave you with a headache for days.
The Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) has immensely affected overall marketing efforts of all businesses, making it is increasingly difficult for businesses to prospect for new clients without explicit or implied consent. In such a situation there is often a need for a medium to act as a promotional platform for a business.
That’s why attending and participating in trade shows has become an increasingly important aspect of brand exposure for small businesses.
Top 10 Reasons For Attending Trade Shows

Face-to-face Interactions – There is no stronger impression tool for you and your brand than face-to-face communication. This is perhaps the best way to network, market, and truly target your audience. So take advantage of it!
Product Demonstrations – What better way to engage with prospective clients than to allow them to engage all their senses in something they can see, touch, hear and feel why your particular product or service can fulfill their business needs.
